    Whats the best way to remove bondo?
    My buddy just bought a 94 civic and the side trim places have been filled in on the quarters.
    Would it just be better to cut out a section on another coupe and weld it in? I'm not much of a body guy.

    Got the majority of the bondo removed. I recommend using a heat gun, the bondo just turns into bondo pudding when you use that.

    I now have another problem. A piece of sheet metal was welded over the side molding place. Whats the best way to remove that? I was thinking using a die grinder and cut slightly under the welds and then remove the metal and grind down the welds that are left. Sound like a good plan?
